Dr. Mark Newman is kidnapped as he leaves his shift at Metropolitan Hospital at 2 a.m. He is bound and tossed into the trunk of his own car. After a harrowing escape, he wakes in ICU with a head injury and little memory of what had happened.
However, the police have found a dead woman in his automobile’s trunk and his wallet under her body. They don’t believe his story of having been kidnapped and are gathering evidence to charge him with murder.
Mark hires Sandra Murray as his lawyer and troubles pile on him. Mark and Sandra feel an attraction for each other but remain professional in their relationship. He loses his job, his girl-friend, knows his reputation may never recover from the accusations, .and the attempts on his life continue. When the story reaches a point where nothing worse could happen to Mark, problems pile even higher.
One delectable reality–Mark’s enemies have no idea that they’re fighting almighty God in their attempts to discredit and kill this doctor. His faith grows as he deals with unknowns like who and why does someone want him dead.
The characters are well-developed and realistic, and the story adrenalin-raising. The novel ends with some surprises and will leave readers satisfied with the outcome.
